Hi friends. We departed early this afternoon on an open party two-day trip with a nice load of folks hoping to find themselves on some gamefish come Saturday. We have a lot of new folks on this trip and a lot of familiar faces joining us for the weekend, so we're pumped. Our gameplan is to run a little below the area we were fishing on Thursday as there were some schools of Bluefin seen and we'll try our luck at some kelp paddies as well. Anyhow, our weather is very pleasant and our passengers are in good spirits and we'll be fishing at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning, Hopefully, we'll awake to a big ole, fat school under the boat, ready to eat. We'll see. Take care and enjoy your weekend.
The ride going up last night wasn't good, although I can't say it was awful either. It was just your average windy rough ride up the line. I'm just not used to it, that's all. The weather for the most part these last couple months for me has just been so good. It doesn't matter because the weather got good again for the important part which is the fishing. And we took advantage of it. We found our dorado kelp. The dorado were small to big and they were plentiful. It was our first dorado kelp of the year. Finally. Though we've had plenty of other specie to keep us busy this year. If you know me you know I'm all about the competition so I like to make searching for kelps fun. Today I challenged Mark to a kelp off which means the person who finds the loaded dorado kelp wins. He found it and of course I couldn't be happier about it. It may be the only thing I'm glad to lose to. Of course he wanted me to tell you all about it. He finally beat me. It was the cherry on top of this wonderful trip. Another one in the books. We're headed back to the barn all fat and happy. Fat from too much eating and happy with all the fish we caught. We'll be dockside tomorrow morning at 6:30 and yes, we will be heading back out to sea. I'll be taking the LA Rod and Reel club out fishing for a couple days.
Good fishing again today in the local tuna grounds it sounds like. Let's make it one more tuna trip for the year before it's over. Our October 3rd and 6th trips are both for sure goes. Let's, and by that I mean you, make our September 26th and 29th trips a go too. Come fishing! My baby can be without her dad for another week if it means she gets those shoes she's been begging me for. 5 months old and she's already begging for shoes. Holy Toledo.
